Is it possible to turn an already existing web game into a Facebook app?

If I have a website that is a browser based game. Not flash, but more text based. And later I wanted to integrate that into a Facebook app. Is that something that would require recoding the entire app or would it just be the authentication part? I want to build it locally first and then make it a Facebook app later. More sandbox at first and then change to a Facebook app.

Thank you.

It might be possible, but is it practical? The whole "point" of Facebook games is the social aspect (and for some generating revenue from ads/facebook credits in a freemium model). If you don't design your game with this social aspect in mind, will it be a good fit for the platform? It seems like targeting the platform as an afterthought is not the best strategy...

If you want to target Facebook, I would build it with Facebook in mind.
